Best casual seafood

A must for fresh, local seafood. Nothing fancy but our favorite. French fries not appealing but hush puppies are awesome. Enjoy your meal right beside the bay.

An old Destin spot, that is loaded with history. Service was good, but the food is overpriced and nothing special. They have a great story to tell, but fall short on being at the top of the list of seafood establishments in the Destin area.

We have, for years, eaten at the original; however, the new restaurant has tables and servers! :) Food is terrific - make sure have the shrimp. If you can eat outside, enjoy the water view. Service was outstanding, fast, courteous.

Every time we go to Destin, our first stop for dinner is Dewey's. Their food is great. Their employees are very friendly. There is seating outside over looking the harbor with a great view of the boats coming and going.

Heard a lot about Dewey Destin's but I wasn't as impressed as I had hoped. Food wasn't hot and beer wasn't cold. On the up side, the view is great.

Have ate at Dewey Destin Seafood Harbor Side several times and always enjoyed their food. Yesterday we stopped for lunch. I ordered the Seafood Gumbo and it was very good. I also ordered the Grilled Shrimp Salad. What a mistake. The salad looked like it came right from a prepackaged bag from Walmart. Iceberg lettuce with grated carrots , a... More

This restaurant is rustic and charming. No frills! It's off the beaten path and a great experience. You do sit outside so be prepared to get hot if you eat there in the summer months. There are umbrellas over your tables however. You can't control flies or mosquitos either. If there is a breeze off the bay, the bugs aren't... More
